My boyfriend and I arrived at Cape Town after a long and delayed flight and also my boyfriend's luggage was lost by the airline. So we went straight to Gardens Centre Apartments, where we met Karen, the manager. She was welcoming, friendly, understanding and very helpful, just what we needed after an awful start of our holidays. Thank you very... More

These little self catering apartments are very central being situated over the main shopping centre. ( nice for fresh coffee and a paper in the morning) free parking is in the centre parking which is very convenient. They are clean. Spectacular views of either the city or the mountain. The wind can moan through the windows if it is blowing... More

Easy to find on the top floor of the center as you approach the woolworths. Speedy check in, good security. Free parking arranged easily. Room is large and spacious, and they offered to add a third bed when they thought we were 3 people. Easy access to to N2 and M3 from de Waal drive. The my citi bus system... More

This is a great place to stay in Cape Town. Located in a prime position between Table Mountain, the Waterfront and the CBD. The rooms are really nice and well cleaned. The view from the windows is priceless - Table Mountain at its finest. Well priced rooms, and as it is part of a shopping centre too, access to food... More

I stayed for only one night when I had to find a place at very short notice and all the hotels in the centre of Cape Town seemed to be fully booked. The reception was also still open when I arrived, even though it was a little hard to find (a security guard assisted me). The furnishing and fittings in... More

Good morning, We really appreciate you taking the time to provide us with feedback. Our holiday apartments entrance is slightly tucked away from the buzz of Garden Centre Shopping Centre. We agree that the rooms do boast some of the most spectacular city and mountain views - almost giving a sense that one can touch the mountain. Our rates are... More

We stayed at Gardens Centre Holiday Apartment for a week in October. 2 of us in a double room, 2 in a twin room. We found it super convenient having a kitchenette with everything you need and supermarkets downstairs to just pop down ad get some food. I liked that we had free parking, as this was a main concern... More

Check-in went very smooth even though we arrived in the dead of night. Nice clean apartment with nice view, no frills. Helpful desk, plenty of free parking. You could walk to the center but it's really a bit far. The shopping mall with restaurants and 2 supermarkets sure comes in handy. WiFi was very slow and there was no heat... More
